    For those of you who like to hold your musical delivery method, I offer you my expertly crafted CD version of "Saturn." Printed on robust recycled cardboard, the jacket features a bed of finest plastic in which sits your CD, waiting for you whenever you need a good dose of Brooklyn Rock-and-Soul, Elijah Tucker-style. Featuring photography by Ben Lazar and Ahron Foster, the CD makes a great gift...as in, you can wrap it and hand it to your loved one and they will know you actually thought about them in advance, rather than just clicking a download button and smiling sheepishly. Do the right thing.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    For those who want the most honest, richest and truest experience of Saturn, the Limited Edition vinyl is the only way to go. Though the digital version sounds great, if you want to hear the album the way it was meant to be heard (and you can't get to a studio to listen to the 1/4" tape mixes), this is your best option. The album was done entirely on an old Trident board to a Studer 2" tape machine, mixed to tape and mastered straight to vinyl--when you put this record on, you will hear a true analog creation--from our lips and fingers to your ears, no binary code in the way. And it is a rich experience indeed. Give one to all the vinyl enthusiasts in your life!

about

Elijah Tucker Brooklyn, New York

Proficient on drums and guitar, Tucker devoted the beginning of his career to drumming in the jam band scene (he remains a big Phish fan), cutting his teeth in many sweaty funk ensembles before turning his attention to his guitar playing, singing, and songwriting. At once sophisticated and down home, Tucker's music is simply “Rock ‘n’ Soul.” ... more

Track Name: Gimme Gimme
I know she'll gimme gimme gimme every thing I want
If it catches my eye it'll be mine before morning
But wanting wanting wanting isn't what I need
The proof is in my terminal misery

She'll give me every answer running through her head
If one suits me I'll use it 'til the morning
But once I'm all alone it seems it's left for dead
And I am too

I hung my organs on a rusty nail
I pulled clothes off the hanger
I covered up, hit the street and talked a big old game
While my eyes were flashing danger danger

I found a woman put her on a pedestal
It hurt sometimes just to see her
I wrote her rock songs, she could sing along
I can't imagine what it's like to be her

I hung my organs on a rusty nail
I pulled clothes off the hanger
I covered up, hit the street and talked a big old game
While my eyes were flashing danger danger

So gimme gimme gimme everything I want
Gimme gimme gimme everything I want
Gimme gimme gimme everything I want
'Til what I want is what I need
Track Name: Crazy Things
I do some crazy things when I'm alone
I do some crazy things when I'm alone
I never know if I should call you on the phone

I've known you seven years, I met you in the woods
I've known you seven years, I met you in the woods
And if I brought you tears, well I hope it was good

When I said that thing I didn't really want to say
When I said that thing I didn't really want to say
I was really worried it was gonna ruin my day
Track Name: A Crimson Gleam
A Crimson Gleam

She sent a shock in the night
Drilled my skull, let in more light
Ten long years to a broken heart
Nothing to do when my soul’s broke apart

I ate my essence by a stream
My feet were bleeding a crimson gleam
As I walked back to my bed
Love Love Love Love
Is what led me here

And she’ll hold me, that’s all she’s ever done
All the blood that I’ve bled has flown into one
And the salt and the tears and the grain and the brine
And all of my relations are all ghosts in a line
We’ll break every rule just before it’s been made
And we’ll be not the fools to think we can save
Our selves and our minds, our dollars and our dimes
Least of all not these songs sure won’t last very long

I think of food like a lusty wife
I want it in me day and night
I’ll sleep through breakfast
But I’ll eat lunch twice
Passion’s no virtue
Until it’s a vice
Track Name: Kicking Snow
This is not a love story
Not a tenderness tale cast in glory
Every time the sun in it’s shine
Assures the wonder has proven benign

And I’m alone, and nowhere is home
And I’m on the street, angry and Kicking Snow

The wind in my hair, your hair in the drain
There’s rarely a meeting and more often pain
And when I wake up and see you’ve left home
I’m back to sleep like a child, my mind is my own

And I’m alone, and nowhere is home
And I’m on the street, angry and Kicking Snow

I see what seems right and I’ll spend one more night
In your bed
But come the day, I’ll not abide come what may

This story is a shocker
Not a crime thriller, but it’s a knee-knocker
Every time I reach out my hand
I lose my sure footing on shifting sand
Track Name: O Pain! Piano
O Pain! Piano keys, they jingle jangle in the doorway
O Pain! Piano—black and white ones and they are 88

Wires fit to fissure with the tension and the pressure
And the wonder of the one who knows the tune
Modulate the key within the lock and
Look again upon this room

O Pain! Piano keys, they jingle jangle in the doorway
O Pain! Piano—black and white ones and they are 88

The best thing about my life is that it’s mine
The worst thing about my life is Everything

O Pain! Piano—black and white ones and they are 88

I started thinking smaller, I answered less the caller
But God above, I’m hungry and I hear your dinner bell
Clanging like a crash of chords and convalescent cranks to get through hell
Track Name: Amos and Boris
Rode round a curlicue
Kicked into clearer dew
Echo to make you sweat
Why aren’t you happy yet
This is the mourning of your old form the following is your life

Long as you’re living boy
Keep making tinsel noise
Shimmer to bring the dawn
Barefoot in sodden lawn
Christmas comes quickly, no longer sickly now that you’ve shed your wife

All of your feathers fine
Fur growing in a line
Keep pace you’ve busted cage
Honor your gas mileage
Fill up on candy, nuts—feeling randy
Now is your providence

Your providence
Track Name: If I Only Had a Brain
USED BY PERMISSION
Track Name: Whoa Daddy
I said Go Daddy
Do what you must do
Work a day, it will pay the fruit of Mommy’s womb

I said Go Daddy
Cast your line
With tears of joy for your baby boy
You cannot waste your time

Cast your anger in faith
On the altar of love
Hear and know you’ve been heard

Reeds a-rustle one lost fish
Ocean’s offering, such a nice dish
Fresh for your family one holy wish
Five pink pounds it is enough

And I said go Daddy
Sing me a song
One that’s just right for my good-night
I’ll sing it all night long

Twinkle Twinkle and all is soft
Warm in the night, the rest of my life
Upful sweet and long

With my heart in the earth
And my soul in the sea
Blue life in my veins

You’re my daddy I’ll never forget
You’re earth on my roots my heart is set
You call me son, can’t no better it get
My sing-song ‘tis of thee
